We have eight more amazing new tracks and videos to share with you this week. The material runs the gamut from super slow sludge to female fronted symphonic metal and everything in between. As the year nears a close, the continued flow of great new songs is making it increasingly difficult to narrow down our list of The Best Metal Songs of 2014 but then again that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
The new song by American Heritage is defined by its chunky, yet technical riffs. Comparisons can be made to early Mastodon, mixed with lots of hardcore angst.
The first single from Soulburn’s sophomore album is a dark and heavy track with black metal influences. If you enjoy old school acts like Bathory and Celtic Frost you will absolutely love what Soulburn has to offer.
Our Last Enemy is one of the most promising underground metal bands around right now. Their latest album is even included in our list of Best Metal Albums of 2014 (so far). “Wolves of Perigord” is everything that industrial metal used to be; heavy, dark and mechanical. Make sure to check out our short review of their new album, Pariah, HERE.
This is a great music video featuring the live version of “As The Pages Burn”. This is one of the best tracks from Arch Enemy’s latest album and the video shows off the amazing live chops of new singer, Alissa White-Gluz.
Once again, we have another great song from Rivers Of Nihil’s debut album. For those of you who have been lucky enough to see these guys live, you know exactly how amazing the band is and the unlimited amount of potential that they possess. If you love tech death, make sure you check this one out.
Here’s another great track from Aborted’s latest masterpiece. “Cenobites” is heavy, catchy and full of great guitar work. We have become increasingly more impressed as each song from the album is released. At this point we would have to consider it one of the better metal albums of 2014.
Seeing that this is already the third song from Job For A Cowboy’s upcoming new album that we have featured on our weekly list, Sun Eater would have to be considered one of the most anticipated albums of 2014. Once again this song has a lot more progressive elements than many JFAC fans may be used to but it all works together so well.
The Quantum Enigma is easily one of the best metal albums released this year and “Victims of Contingency” may be it’s best song. It contains some of the best beauty and the beast vocals that we have ever heard. Make sure not to miss out on this one.
